Music Made Me: Josh Hogsett

Few, if any, Oklahoma bands have seen a rise as meteoric as Tallows over the past year, yet its seemingly overnight ascension didn’t happen by chance. The Oklahoma City four-piece is well-versed in the ways of modern pop songwriting, drawing from both glitchy electronica and cathartic indie rock in equal measure. Last year, the band pulled off a rare musical feat with its debut album, Memory Marrow, which was steeped heavily in the breadth of recent history yet managed to sound like nothing else before it.

Planting the seed

Chelsey Cope’s new band, Elms, is as earthy and native to Oklahoma as the trees that are their namesake. The soulful folk four-piece’s debut EP, Parallel Lines, was recorded at Bell Labs Recording Studio in Norman and is on its way in September. But the band has already given us a tease, with its first single, “Burn,” going live on SoundCloud on July 14.

Toby Keith: Big Dog Daddy


None June 14th, 2007

Show Dog

If you are heading to the lake this weekend and your plan includes having a good time, partying and not thinking too much, then Toby Keith's new album "Big Dog Daddy" could be the sound track to a beer-soaked boat-nanza.

 

Oklahoma native Keith isn't breaking new ground with this one, but that's not really the point. The album is sonically impeccable and was produced by Keith himself. He pulls off one sentimental track, "I Know She Hung the Moon," on the record, but most of the album is for boot-stomping and beer swilling.

 

If you take three of the new songs' in order, "High Maintenance Woman," "Get My Drink On" and "Walk It Off"' you have a glimpse into a day in the life of any average Midwestern man, and this is where Keith excels: singing about twangy Everyman thoughts and feelings to tequila-fueled party people.

 

Nothing new, but not bad.
